The Mumbai police have already won the social media with their pun-filled, witty tweets. We mean, can any other police force in India beat such gems as “If you roll, we will weed you out” or “Your creepy comments on her photo will get you a long date with us“?
They just added another feather to their cap and marched much ahead of other police forces in terms of popularity.
Well, they recently got their own calendar, with the cops in action making for some awesome, eye-catching images.
Interestingly, it is for the first time that a police force in India has been the subject of a calendar. Time to think beyond Kingfisher, eh?
It’s clicked by fashion photographer Pravin Talan, who is known for his past projects on Taj Mahal and India’s Border-man. Talan says the calendar is his tribute to the Mumbai police.
Here are some images from the calendar:
